We all mess up in life and need second, sometimes third and fourth, chances. When last have you messed up and needed forgiveness? Can you give others the second chance Jesus gave you?
Extending forgiveness to someone who has wronged you or profoundly hurt you can be a difficult journey. It may even, at times, feel impossible. So, to support you on your journey, we’d like to offer you some help and resources.
Take some time out to hear from Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch Christian who survived the Ravensbrück concentration camp during World War II. In the above video clip, she shares how to forgive in her own words and from her personal experience.
Everett Worthington, a psychologist who has spent his career studying forgiveness, may also help you. After his mother was murdered in 1996, Everett began thinking about how forgiveness relates to justice, faith, and virtue. While he forgave the murderer, the emotional fallout for him and his family was, understandably, devastating. Everett offers forgiveness resources such as The Path to Forgiveness: Six Practical Sections for Becoming a More Forgiving Person and Your Path to REACH Forgiveness: Become a More Forgiving Person in Less Than Two Hours on his website at no cost.
